“There comin’ in the dark at night………….”!
Damn right! – they also seem to be coming in large chunks from DFA at the moment – simply pumpin’ one great debut release out after the other!
Someone give their A&R man and Label Manager at great hug - “Mr. Ambassador – you are positively spoiling us!”.
Michoacan – or better known as – Fernando Miranda Rios to his mum – provides an awesome debut release for DFA in the shape of – “In The Dark At Night”- after having released stuff for Grayhound, Headinghome, Lektroluvv, Smash Hit Music Co., Speak Recordings, Bearfunk and Tiny Sticks.
The slow-burning, acoustic-ridden original of this is the aural equivalent of an 18 wheel Desert Train running you over in steady mid-tempo, funki’fied, space’y fashion complete with Space-Boogie spelled in large capital letters.
Flip the beast over and Italy’s – Clap Rules – deconstructs the track entirely by structuring a HUGE wah wah driven, Disco-splattered monster of a remix, which wouldn’t find itself out of place in an episode of “Starsky & Hutch”.
With plenty of 8 Bit action coupled with glossy keys, Funk oozing from every pore and a phat bassline to hold onto this is exactly the kind of stuff you wanna dance naked to while eye-ing up a blind Doberman!
Large – very!
